This Victorian 18ct Gold Agate intaglio signet ring has such a fascinating history! Hallmarked with the maker's mark "CNAR", this ring was originally crafted by Ruff's Jewellers, one of the oldest established signet ring jewellers in the United Kingdom. 

This fascinating ring is inlaid with a dark green Agate and crisp shield intaglio, a stunning complement to the buttery 18ct Gold. This ring would be a fantastic gift for an avid signet ring collector.

HALLMARKS: Renowned quality Maker's Mark "CNAR" which stands for Cyril Norman Aubrey Ruff, the founder of Ruff's Jewellers. Ruff's Jewellers are one of the oldest maker's of British signet rings, and today are within their 4th lineage. This ring also bears modern hallmarks, so it was recently assayed in London with the Crown, "750" and London Assay office. 


VERY GOOD: This Victorian 18ct Gold Agate intaglio signet ring is in fabulous condition throughout. The shield intaglio is well-preserved and crisp, and the thick ring shank is sturdy and robust. The entirety of this piece is pristine, apart from one tiny fleabite to the edge of the Agate, but this is hardly noticeable when worn.
